QuarterBit is the project of Sound Designer Fernando Fonseca that started in 2006 with the project CityScapes, a databending project that turned video stills into sonic data (sound and midi). On his work QuarterBit uses two different dimensions: the world around him as a source (“The Broken Series” projected consisted of damaged appliances like one old refrigerator and a broken MD player) and the mathematical world of self developed Max/Msp patches that he feeds back to the world around him, only to make it captive again inside a patch. QuarterBit works with the duality beween the raw and visible melted with the abstract. Currently QuarterBit is working on a remix for the “Cosecha” EP from Kieron James, soon to be released. QuarterBit communicates with others mostly by using the artificial language Klingon. Bring your own dictionary.
